It's a cool place in the heart of downtown T or C with multiple different venues, all within a few blocks of each other.


Another great option is the Desert View Motel, Hans is the proprietor and is a big dual sport fan---a lot of the guys stay there every year! (probably the best rate in town & clean rooms)

BTW, I just had a nice conversation with one of the ranchers that has a place just south of the town of Montecello. He is not real fond of OHVs ripping through the canyon. He says that it is all over the internet and guys are coming from as far as Louisiana to rip through there.

[soapbox] If we represent NMOHVA, we need to show respect for that place. I don't have an answer for all of the clowns that tear through there, but we can do what we can while we are there.[/soapbox]

I like to shred the water crossings as much as the next guy, but please guys, slow down when you see someone, are on blind corners or down by the ranches.

It ain't the Westin . But the rooms are clean and I've never had trouble getting a tub.

. Let's show our stewardship by keeping the noise/pace down a bit and avoiding some of the carnage that has been associated with ... Other events ... in the past.

If we can keep the bike/livestock collisions and EMS calls to a minimum (or zero) that would be a good start

Amen. There is no point in ripping before town, through town, or for quite a ways after town. The good stuff isn't until after the ranch houses anyway. Enjoy the scenery, look at the trees and hills. Try to spot wildlife. Take the Burma road instead. Don't wind it out near the houses; short shift. There are a lot of options to be respectful.

A lot of nice folks live out there, and they have helped some of us in the past (the guy who broke his leg got a ride to the hospital) and even let people stay in their homes for a few hours while someone got a truck (the horse vs. moto incident). Let's not burn this bridge.

From personal experience, I recommend the TorC ER. The nurse was rather lovely, and quite gentle as she scrubbed the pebbles from my hand.

I've always gone slow and quiet anywhere near the ranches or where folks live, and try to be a solid citizen thru there...nothing worse than a bad public perception.

Not much you can do about the knuckleheads except show the locals there's good with the bad.

Time to hit craigslist for that beater XR250

I have camped at Elephant Butte lake, it's about 15 minutes from down town. They have RV sites with power and water and a dump station. You can also camp right on the beach if you like to dry camp. There is also a small RV place in Winston, but I have not stayed there. There are also a few RV parks in ToC.
